The Master of Science in Technology Management (MSTM) Program is meant to further the academic preparation and professional advancement of the baccalaureate graduate with a degree in and professional orientation toward technology management or similar industrial-technical fields. The program provides theoretical and practical learning experiences to prepare graduates for leadership positions in industry and/or prepare them for doctoral level programs such as the Ph.D. in Technology Management.
The MSTM program consists of a core of common courses, a concentration, and a culminating experience.

For regular admission with no deficiency course work, the student’s baccalaureate should have included substantial coursework related to the MSTM concentration. The MSTM concentrations follow:
Unconditional entrance to the program requires a baccalaureate degree closely related to a technical, engineering technology, or technology management field. The most appropriate baccalaureate degrees will be ABET or ATMAE accredited or meet the curriculum standards of ABET or ATMAE. The applicant applies via the College of Graduate and Professional Studies web site. The applicant should also send a letter of application (email is okay) to the AETM department stating the concentration they wish to pursue because the decision about a student’s application cannot be finalized until the department knows the intended concentration.
